day i note that children in america suffer for a variety of reasons. the senate, of course, had a bill that they are pushing through that was at the $54 billion. still very far short of the great needs of this community. so i rise today to say that it landed with a thud and i think more importantly my colleague from texas, again, from houston, spoke on the floor of the house about some untimely language on page 52. i remember it. that cut into the light rail system of houston. it would impact my district. it would stop students at the university of houston and texas southern university from being able to have access to rail, cutting down on their travel costs because there was a provision in the bill that did not fund just a sector of that light rail. my colleagues, how can you build light rail when you cut it in the middle like the western movies when the train rushes up and finds a big hole over the mountain where something has happened and it can't go any further? so it was a bill destined to die, should have died because it lacked compassion. and i stand here opposing any language

told this reporter the great thing about america is there's all these jobs. that's not something americans think, like there's all these jobs. the other thing on these immigrants said was, the other great thing about america is that if you work hard you can get ahead in this country. >> i was here in texas a month or two ago, and it was a small business, just one little taxi come and the driver was an immigrant. i asked him about his experience when he came to america. he said when i arrived it was like i was woken up and i had these opportunities. >> i think it's kind of ambitious drive that is unique to immigrants. let's face it, there's -- 99% of the people in the world never move from where the girl. watauga but the 1% of people are ambitious enough and courageous enough to leave your homeland is a very courageous thing to do. so this is as an economist, i just think this is one of the kind of innate advantages of having immigration. number one, they are preselected for kind of economic success. and number two, this gets back to my point about china, let's face it, the bigges
of its kind in america, to enable information sharing across the austin medical community. -- austin medical community. medicalgency -- boston community. the reaction after the attack was not accidental. it was a product of years of training and investment in the link state and local capacity and the quick, orderly, focused, and comprehensive response by law enforcement, first responders, and the larger boston community on that day saved lives. immediate control over the scene by law enforcement and assistance from first responders and medical personnel helped you entry theack fallen fallen and injured, a scenario they have practiced to ensure no one facility would be overwhelmed. citizens stepped up and played a critical role, it hearing for the wounded, donating blood, and submitting videos that helped -- aify the suspects powerful reminder of the role the public lays in providing aid but also providing useful information. the reason why after i became secretary, i called for the creation and then expansion of the argument " if you see something say something" campaign, expanding i
the capable and is gathering information on every phone call made in america, you're concerned how that could be used not just by the government but by individuals working for the government, and by somebody who all of a sudden may decide to politically target people. that's a legitimate concern. so, again, i'm not -- i don't think we should trivialize the debate beyond the personalities involved. it's a very significant balancing act. these are important programs. we have to be able to do some of this and figure out how to do it in a way that americans have more conversation, and a lot of that starts by leadership. when you have reports that the irs targeted americans that undermines the confidence. >> neil: up sos like you're slightly more to the side of the libertarian thinking on this. protect us bus not at the expense of going too far. >> i think we have to be able to do both. >> neil: i understand that. the reason why i even mention it is that there's been some shifting on your part, or so it would appear, on a couple of key issues, from immigration reform to obamacare and maybe defundi

and in latin america. sometimes from countries that didn't exist in the world of empire, in the colonial world of 1913, 100 years ago, and 1914 at the start of the first world war. diplomats today represent governments, as they always have, but they also represent international institutions like the united nations. you fly the flag of the united nations here at chautauqua. they represent international institutions like the world bank and the international monetary fund. and i even think people who work for nonprofit organizations, who are dedicated to combating poverty, who want to promote economic development, who are promoting health care, who are trying to promote peace, i think they're diplomats too,. so in that vein think of bill and melinda gates and the enormously positive impact those two people and their foundation are ching on the fight against live aids, the fight to eradicate polio, which is nearly complete. only three countries in the world where polio exists these days. think of the champion figure skater michelle kwan. you saw her in the olympics. she's joined the state departme
out what the world thinks about america. people want to see americans stay home. host: that refers to how america's involvement in afghanistan weighs upon positions being made. here's what he had to say. [video clip] collects my preference would be that the national community already asked forceful. is ane have seen incapacity for the security counsel to move forward in the face of a clear violation of international norms. i recognize that here in the united states and in great parts of theany world there is a certain afghanistanen there's a suspicion of any military action. on the other hand it is important for us to recognize hundreds of innocent children were killed. -- were killed through the use of a weapon that 98% of a weapon that says should not be used in a war. there is no action that we are sending a signal that that international norm doesn't mean much. host: cooper is up next. i can't help but think -- caller: i can't help but think it sabotages the democratic party. there is not a lot going on there. it's using a sabotage of the democratic party. it sabotage ofe the d
'm not saying anything about mlb or anything that's going on. i'm saying this is a process, this is america, you have the opportunity to defend yourself, and i think the process, like all americans, will have the opportunity to defend ourselves in a due process, and i think that's what we'll have today and i'll have my day. >> the 38-year-old also vowed to repeal and fight the suspension, and with a repeal, he remains eligible to play until a decision is reached. he did admit a year ago that he used performance-enhancing drugs from 2001 to 2003, but he has repeatedly denied using them since then. fox's own adam hounsley. adam, what do you got? >> it's been quite a circus for alex rodriguez the last few months as mlb did their best to try to get him to agree to a suspension. 12 others have all agreed to some sort of suspension, depending on the time and the length, but a-rod was the one holdout. the reason we're told that suspension is longer than the others is due to the fact he tried to cover up his involvement and even hinder the investigation itself. he claimed that did not happen. he does no
. says america who isn't free and runs off to china and russia to tell about it is not exactly my idea of a great american patriot. i do put a lot of trust in the people who had defended the united states of america their entire careers with distinction and with honor and with the .alor when they walk in and tell me, this is what it is and we are not doing this and you're not doing that and we're not doing this and we asked them the question, then i have got to listen to that before i jerked the rug out from under them. congress is looking at this. it will continue. you, i always worry about the concentrations of power and and eventual liberty. i think that is what keeps free, that individual citizens are passionate about you havethe same time, these abuses. you have got to know where they and i do not think we have lost these freedoms. had, we would not be having this conversation on c- span. it is not china. there is the fbi case and they lost that case -- >> [indiscernible] >> we will see what happens. >> [indiscernible] the consent of the court -- [applause] in the presidential ele
. >>eric: can we switch topics? obamacare. almost half of america when polled said they don't even know obamacare is a law. can you imagine what they're going to wake up to when they start opening their tax bills and their fees. 44% said they didn't realize it was a law. >>gretchen: is this because people don't like taking phone calls during the dinner hour so they answer whatever they want to answer or is this actually the true thing. i'm trying to find the silver lining. >>peter: people keep talking about obamacare and now we're beginning to understand the problems inherent in them. i've had conversations with folks that say to me is it really in effect and don't understand it was rushed through several years ago. >>gretchen: maybe they have been reading a lot about all the delays. so that adds to the confusion. and there's another delay that is coming up today with regard to the marketplaces and whether or not they're going to actually come out on october 1. see if you can keep it straight, folks. >>> americans are fooled by new wording with regard to obamacare as well. instead of ca
of patients using drivingy rooms in america are utilization. at the medicaid -- you leave a message no one calls you back. there are no appointment available. that's before the expansion. it's going get even worse as time goes forward. it's mapping out the claims on a map five years of data mapping out the home address of every resident and this is only nine square miles a small community. 6% of the city blocks are 10% of the line mass, 18% of the patients, 27% of the visits and 37% of the cost. it's just theroom room and hospital care. all over america they are living collected in buildings. many of which you are funding through state funds and federal funds. these are the two most expensive in the city. these are beautiful buildings with great management. 600 parents who are mostly dual eligible. these are disabled seniorsed at $12 million in payment for the care to go bark over and over to the hospital. the building at the bottom. 300 patients a nursing home 300 patients had 15 million in payment to got hospital. we have mapped out data all over the cub now and found the same pattern
with bush, that america would, as he obama has been saying, it's standing in the world as a new high. it's at a rather low when we have to our embassies, unprecedented closings around the muslim world. i'm not second-guessing the call. we obviously have a lot of chatter, as he they say. it tells you the wreckage that the foreign policy. >> peter: wreckage. >> alisyn: wreckage, you could say it's the wreckage of the obama foreign policy or as tucker was saying us they hate us, they always have. it's not because of george bush. it's not because of our policy. it's because they are homicidal maniacs. they want to kill children. >> tucker: personal style. they thought bush was dumb. that's why they attacked us. it was so false from day one. >> alisyn: meanwhile, we do have other news to get to. here are your headlines. we have brand new information on that multi-state. >> salad was served in olive garden and red lobster restaurant. health officials are still trying to determine if the salad mix is responsible for the outbreak in the other 14 states. and it could be his last home run for a ve
intent on doing something good when they go around violating the rights of every citizen in america. all the badrs things happening in this a administration that obama calls a hoax. i am sure the mainstream media will jump all over this, but they do not tell us anything else. you see the same headlines for 10 days in a row on the computer. host: thank you for the call. this is a story from " washington times" web site. unnamed u.s. officials told media outlets that intelligence agencies in yemen alerted washington to the threats as the yemeni president came to the u.s. to meet members of congress last thursday." michael is joining us next from philadelphia, democratic line, good morning. caller: thank you for covering this important topic. i was wondering if you have any insight or sources that revealed why it is such a general area being covered as opposed to, say, 36 -- 3 specific countries? that is one question. the other is a common about how unstable these places are these days. pakistan has never been stable in recent memory. a contributing factor. of course then there is the bengh
threat that i've seen in the last several years. >>gretchen: should america take a stand or shut down? joining us is fox news middle eastern terrorist expert. what do you make of this? i know it would take more than an idle threat to close this many embassies. >> i do. what we know is al qaeda from yemen and other spots have threatened individuals will blow up inside the embassy. we're not talking about an all-out attack from the outside by thousands of people, hundreds of people. in this case the best position would have been to say we're not receiving visitors and we are taking measures and also ask the armies and the security forces of these countries to create a perimeter of protection. the reason i'm saying this short of knowing very specifically what time and who and what manner they're going to attack the embassy, if we don't have this information, we don't have it. that's why we shut down 22 of those. this would be the best course. the reason is this is sending a message to al qaeda and the other jihaddists they are winning. even if they don't attack they will get videos and m
